My name is Neeta, and I am a student teacher at The Rumpus Room. I am very glad to join the Nest team in this centre. At present, I am studying Graduate Diploma in Teaching (ECE) at New Zealand Tertiary College Auckland. I started my practice in September 2020 alongside Kalpi as my mentor. At present, I am doing my practice in the infants’ and toddlers’ room. My teaching philosophy is inspired by the RIE philosophy. I also believe in empowering children so that they can learn in their own ways. I would love to offer them learning opportunities so that they can explore new things. I love reading books. I like William Shakespeare’s books. One of my favourite books is “As you like it”, that explains the seven stages of human life. I also love travelling to different places.
